When it comes to the availability in the Indian market, the Xbox site mentions that the wireless headset will be available in India, but, in late 2021, the exact date being October 5. Do note that the Indian pricing is yet to be announced.

Xbox Wireless Headset Specifications

In terms of the technical specifications of the Wireless Headset, the headphone comes included with massive 40mm drivers, which, according to Microsoft are made from paper composite diaphragm and neodymium magnets. The headphones also have a response range of 20Hz to 20,000Hz, with the SBC codec on offer.

For the Bluetooth version, the Wireless Headset connects via Bluetooth 4.2 and charges via a USB Type-C port. As for the battery, the claims state that the Xbox Wireless Headset can last for 15 hours, with fast charging support, capable of providing 4 hours of charge with a 30-minute top-up. Zero-to-full charging takes around 3 hours.

Users wishing to make use of the headphones on Windows 10 devices require devices with Bluetooth 4.2 or above, as well as a Xbox wireless adapter or a Type-C cable. Some limited voice chat features also require the user to have Xbox Game Pass Ultimate or Xbox Live Gold memberships.

The build too is quite good, with the wireless headphones featuring foam cushions and ear cups with an oval design, with polyurethane leather as well as foam. An LED indicator to the side lets the user know whether the mic is on or off.

The headphones also come with buttons to mute the voice, switch the headphones on or off, balance the audio and control the volume.

The Headphones also support Dolby Atmos, DTS Headphone:X and Windows Sonic on the Series S, Series X and One consoles. One can also adjust equalizer settings, bass boost, mic monitoring, auto-mute and led brightness for the headphones via the Xbox accessories application.
